Bermejales Lake Granada {Embalse de Los Bermejales}

We kicked off Summer 2016 with a late afternoon trip to Bermejales Lake.

Los Bermejales is Poniente Granadino’s very own inland beach and is a great place for water sports, building sand castles and relaxation.

It’s always quiet here.

In the cold of the winter, it’s a great place to just sit back, enjoy the magnificent view and soak in the sun.

In the summer, it gets a little bit busy. But not too busy that you can’t find a little nook just for yourself.


Los Bermejales is where you go if you want somewhere quiet surrounded by olive groves and a breathtaking view. It’s also good for families with kids.

What To Do

Like many other lakes in Andalucia, there are many activities that you can do here.

  1. Have a picnic. There’s a picnic area with tables and benches, but if you want to go a bit more “wild”, there are other places too where you can spread a mat and lay down a picnic basket.Remember though that during the summer season (about June to October), starting a fire is prohibited and the fine can be steep.
  2. Go Swimming. Duh. 🙂 It’s cold in the winter, but some people do brave it. In the height of summer, it’s a good alternative to the swimming pool.
  3. Go Camping. Camping Los Bermejales is open the whole year. It’s a big place and can get full in the summer so make sure you make reservations.
  4. Do Water Sports. Not far from the camping place,  you can rent various sports equipment such as kayaks, pedalos, paddle boards, etc.
  5. Cycling . There’s a route that goes around the lake. Bring your own bicycle or you can rent one from the camp site.
  6. Walking/Hiking. It can get very hot in the middle of the day in the summer but later afternoon or early morning is a great place to explore the surrounding area.
  7. Birdwatching. Check this site for info on Bermejales birdwatching.
  8. Rock Climbing, Paintball and More. The Campsite offers these services. Check out the activities page on their site.
